Is Roy Hibbert a potential free agency target for the Cavaliers?

After the most recent collective bargaining agreement, one specific asset that had long been among the most valuable depreciated rather suddenly: the expiring contract. Teams became better about balancing their cap sheets, and those with the money not to care operated with huge luxury tax burdens. Gone were the days of Theo Ratliff's Expiring Contract as a running gag.But the expiring...

Cavaliers want David Blatt to rely more on veteran bench

David Richard-USA TODAY SportsCavaliers coach David Blatt has yet to play Shawn Marion, Kendrick Perkins or Brendan Haywood in the NBA Finals.  He’s also allowed Mike Miller to play just a combined 14 minutes through four games.

LISTEN: Iman Shumpert raps about the playoffs

Iman Shumpert has brought plenty to the table as a Cleveland Cavalier: athleticism, dogged defense, a nifty pull-up game, the occasional three-point shot. Before Tuesday’s Cavs-Celtics game tipped off, Fox Sports Ohio viewers got to see another side of Shump: his skills on the microphone. Shumpert, you see, has long dabbled in hip-hop music, and he recorded a playoff themed tune...

Only five members of the Cleveland Cavaliers have had the opportunity of playing with or against LeBron James in the playoffs: Mike Miller and James Jones (teammates with the Miami Heat), Shawn Marion and Brendan Haywood (2011 NBA Finals with the Dallas Mavericks), and a player that probably knows the most about him even though he has never been his teammate for a playoff game, Kendrick...

Summer trade of Brendan Haywood could carry 300% tax rate for Cavs

Last Thursday’s trade deadline was a fairly quiet affair for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Sure, you can discuss the merits of Kendrick Perkins and his presence as a fourth big for this streaking team. But largely, the most impactful Cavs news from last week was a non-transaction. After some recent speculation from the blogosphere, the Cavs decided to keep veteran center Brendan Haywood...

Cavs take Utah’s Delon Wright in ESPN’s 2015 NBA mock draft

Thursday is the NBA trade deadline. And while the Cleveland Cavaliers will be thinking of small deals on the fringes of their roster, it’s also fun to consider possible upgrades during the coming summer. As I discussed last month, a Brendan Haywood trade is much more palatable this season than during the offseason because of the tax consequences. The Cavs aren’t likely to have...

When David Griffin masterfully acquired Brendan Haywood this past summer, the entire Cleveland Cavaliers landscape was different than it is today.
